It is truly a privilege for me to be a full time volunteer with Operation Shower! Over the past year I have experienced the love and appreciation for each military family that goes into every box that is given. I have attended beautiful showers that honor these moms-to-be in the same special way that family and dear friends would treat them. The large "Shower Boxes" given to these deserving women are filled with exceptional gifts for both the babies and the mothers, as well as support materials and services. I have seen tears of gratitude and received thanks in the form of hugs, personal stories, and letters of hardships and struggles these expectant women often face while away from home - with loved ones living in other states while their husbands are deployed. Soldiers have also sent letters of appreciation expressing how Operation Shower helped to ease their stress in providing what they otherwise could not afford, and how happy they were to hear that their wife was treated to such a spectacular event/surprise in their absence! The good work of Operation Shower is a very powerful blessing in the lives of so many men, women, and children! Through these boxes and showers, military families that sacrifice so much to serve and protect our country can feel the care, love, compassion and gratitude that they are so deserving of!!! The families left behind are just as important as the soldiers deployed - and this WONDERFUL nonprofit recognizes that on a daily basis!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
honor EVERY military mom-to-be with their amazing "Shower Boxes" and not have to limit and turn away requests due to lack of funding and donations.
